My research and teaching endeavors include climate action, community resilience, regenerative agriculture and permaculture, the built environment, sustainable technologies, Life Cycle Assessment, systems thinking and complexity, and renewable energies. I teach Environmental Politics and Policy, Science and Action for Climate Mitigation and Adaptation, and the Food, Water, and Climate Nexus courses. I work with Master in Environmental Management students and undergraduates in Environment and Sustainability, mentoring and facilitating their projects. I have led research and mentored student’s projects on food systems, agroforestry, bioenergy, wind energy, microalgae biotechnology, municipal waste management, composting and biochar, community water and sanitation, as well as climate mitigation and adaptation action plans for cities and regions. I did my undergrad studies in Physics Engineering, a Master’s in Regional Development Planning, and a Ph.D. in Renewable Energies. In my career, I have collaborated with organizations in North and Latin America, Europe, and West Africa.
